Product description

Tim Burton (USA, b. 1958) is the youngest of Hollywood's most successful directors. He has the knack of making films with a very broad appeal, taking the silliness out of the representation of children, while remaining in touch with the child within himself and his audiences. Burton emerged as a director and storyteller after working as an animator for Disney. His meeting with Johnny Depp enabled him to give physical form to the heroes of his imaginary worlds, where fear is mixed with laughter, strange is normal and those who are not normal, such as Edward Scissorhands (1990), must be preserved. After Beetlejuice (1988) and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), the resolutely boyish Burton, now in his fifties, presents his version of Alice in Wonderland (2010).

I bought this book and read it really fast because... Well... It's Tim Burton.
It has really nice information about him and all his work, most of it I didn't even knew about.
It's a must have for Tim.B lovers and collectors like me.

Review quote

'For us, Tim Burton's films spell Christmas more than any Queen's speech. Atoine de Baecque's new biography mixes film stills with incisive interviews, making this a great present for cineastes.' Living Etc
